I'm led to believe this has small round black berries on at some point:

I'm not sure but it reminds me of Rubus species (Blackberry, Raspberry, Bramble.) We have quite a few listed in our database

Hopefully someone will be along soon and recognize it to give you an exact ID.

Newcastle, CA? Newcastle upon Tyne? Newcastle in Australia?

I've run out of Newcastles but the answer to the question(s) will change our answer to your question.

Would these round berries just be round berries? Or berries that are a lot of round berries glued together?

Those look like simple leaves, alternately arranged.

With no other information, and assuming (coals to) Newcastle, UK - I think that could be a Currant (Ribes sp.).

Apologies folks, it is indeed Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, or to be specific just outside in Northumberland (Morpeth)... Google it - it's 'quaint'.

Single round berries, which leads me now to believe it's a blackcurrant plant - leaves also match the search I've just done with the help you gave.

Thanks for the assistance again with this one. Smiling
